New Stamps. Large Tag.

Hi there, for this sample I started with a large tag and brayered on some Guacamole, Tinned Peas and Hyde Park. When this was dry I stencilled the diamonds with Spanish Mulberry. 

Next I brayered with Snowflake, and then added some lines of Inky Pool using a credit card. 

I coloured some Grunge Paste with Hyde Park and applied some of the mix in the top corner and down one side. Into this I pressed the leaf background stamp from EDY12

I stamped the grasses from EDY11 and coloured those with watery Tinned Peas. The text from EDY12 was stamped onto smoothy card and then matted onto more smoothy that had been painted with Beach Hut. This was glued and then stapled in the top corner. 

I painted some more smoothy and stamped the background stamp from EDY12 in a very similar blue ink so it would fade into the background. Over that I stamped the border from EDY12. This was cut into 2 strips and glued to the bottom of the tag before being coloured in with Fibralo pens. 

I painted some smoothy with Pumpkin Soup and stamped the flowers from EDY12. 

These were cut out and then matted onto more smoothy that I had painted with Inky Pool

Here it is all done, lots of techniques to practice on one piece. 

See you soon with more samples.
